Back again

Hello again,

It has been a long, time since I’ve written.  The last couple of years have been a time of extended low moods, low energy and extremely low motivation.  I have had no interest in writing, being creative or sharing the things going on in our busy household.

We have been busy…competitive dance, music lessons, soccer, basketball, high school graduations, college planning, part-time jobs and all that jazz.  I’ve been going through the motions getting whatever enjoyment I can squeeze out of life and trying my best to maintain my support system of friends and family.    I am thankful for all of the understanding and compassionate people that I have in my life.

I just started a new medication this past week after having some blanking out during driving that motivated a review of my meds and some changes.  I have added Abilify to my Celexa and have stopped taking Wellbutrin and I have to admit that the difference is remarkable.  Hence, my return to my online outlet. I hope to once again have a more visible presence and share our life journey, offer support and inspiration to other home educators and those struggling with mental health.   Peace.
